I edited your topic a bit to make it a little more apparent where your father was. It would also help if you could tell us what period he was there; was he there for any significant period of time before or after the attack?

Let's see what this does...

Michael,
Check whether his military records survived the fire at the National Military Personnel Records Center, St Louis, MO...from what I understand, they have located many duplicate records which may further give you the units in which he served. THAT will help you more than a mere general 'do you know him'...
HTH,

Michael,

There is some possibility that your father is mentioned in the records of the Hawaiian Department held in the National Archives.  The area to investigate would be the Special Orders.  Those documents were used (among other things) to order transfers and reassignments, and it is quite possible that your father might be mentioned among them.

I wish that I had known about this earlier as, just in the last year, I did an extensive search through the Hawaiian Department papers.  As I recall, the Special Orders were in one particular Hollinger box, and are relatively easy to find.

I would rather believe that the Special Orders will likely be the last hope to nail down any specifics on your father's career.  There is some possibility that you might be able to trace your father's service via Special Orders from unit to unit.  I have heard of that actually being done, although it would involve an exceedingly tedious and time-consuming search, dependent on the record continuity of many units.  If he had any decorations, they would also be recorded in a unit's General Orders.   If he was wounded, there are casualty lists.

How close do you live to DC?  I would be glad to fill out a call slip for the HD Special Order Series and mail it to you.  Contact me off-line at wengerm@mindspring.com if you wish to pursue this matter further.
